SARKIC LOOKS FORWARD TO FA CUP TIE

8 November 2019

OLIVER Sarkic is hoping to make his FA Cup debut against Salford City tomorrow (kick off 3pm).

The Brewers striker believes the competition still retains its old magic and he is eager to make a first appearance.

He said: “It’s exciting for, me it has a special feeling and I’m looking forward to it.”

Sarkic is aware that the League Two side will fancy their chances of creating an upset on their own soil in the same way that Albion have created cup shocks over the years, but he says the Brewers will be well prepared.

“We don’t take any game lightly, we will want to keep everything like it was against Morecambe and Port Vale. We will go for it 100 per cent and get a full fit team out there and try and win it.”

Having played for Montenegro Under 17s, 19s and 21s the 22-year-old has aspirations to make the full national side – especially as they are due to play England on November 14. But he missed out this time.

He said: “I was hoping to be called up but my twin brother was and I’m thrilled for him and hopefully next time I will be on that list.

“Over the years they have told me as long as I’m playing, I will be a contender and thankfully at Burton it has suited me really well. I’m playing and hopefully I can get that call up.”
